Quotes

[first lines]
Turaga Vakama: Gathered friends, listen again to our legend, of the Bionicle. In a time, before time, the great spirit, Mata Nui, fell from the heavens, carrying we, the ones called the Matoran. We were separate, and without purpose, so the Great Spirit illuminated us with the three virtues: Unity, Duty, and Destiny!

Crazy Credits

Toward the end of the credits, a sentence written in Matoran script appears. It reads: "No Rahi were harmed in the making of this film". ("Rahi" is a term that refers to Mata-Nui's fauna.) See more »

A movie for the fans
19 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

This movie isn't for everyone, that's true, but this isn't necessarily based on an age-value, but an experience-value. Mask of Light is a movie more so created for the FANS of the Bionicle series. It isn't impossible that somebody unfamiliar would enjoy the movie, but it does make it more difficult for them to really bond with the characters and the story line. Of course it would promote the toy line in SOME sense, that's only logical considering the movie is a PRODUCT of the toy line, but it does not revolve around that aspect. The character's features were altered to take on a more lifelike state, yet without straying too far from their familiar appearances that fans have come to know them by. As far as expressions go, the characters display emotion beautifully. The way that the masks were designed, as they were to suit the film, allowed for obvious expression that the actual toys could not replicate. Overall, the film was an excellent rendition of the Bionicle world + characters, amazing soundtrack, smooth flowing animation, and rich in design. Bionicle has been around for some years now. This movie didn't just POP UP from a new and showing story. Development of the characters + the legends has evolved greatly. If this movie had been made to COMPLETELY suit those unfamiliar with Bionicle, it wouldn't have been set in the time area that it had, or have gone straight to home video.
